Silver Trembling Hands by The Flaming Lips

I figured I’d continue this metallic theme that the blog has going with the newest track from The Flaming Lips upcoming album, Embryonic, called Silver Trembling Hands. Clocking in at nearly 4 minutes, this reminds me of something off of The Soft Bulletin, kind of all over the place, but it has a great driving drumbeat and my favorite part, when it breaks down into a down tempo, jazzy beat. I haven’t heard anything else off of the album yet, but if it’s anything like this I think we’re all going to be very pleased.

The album also features collaborations with MGMT and Karen O, and should be released in September.
